Wow, that is a really impressive entry list!
Many thanks for the list!! I had been trying to find it. Sometimes the organizers put these B comp lists online on the last minute..
Wow, entry lists for these Senior B's in Europe are HUGE. I realize not all the athletes actually compete, but still. The opportunities in Europe vs. North America and Asia are still so surprisingly distorted
Nothing is stopping USFS and SC from organising (more) international competitions.

I thought we had some men going too, but maybe I'm just confused.
It seems that Plushenko is ready for this event and he will try to obtain the minimum TES for Sochi.
Good luck, Plushy!
Agreed. The problem is not Europe having too many competitions - it's North America (and Asia too perhaps?) having too few.

Or so I gather, though, truth to tell, Google translate is more than ordinarily confusing at times in this article:
"Olga Kovalkova conducting in the Latvian capital on their own means of an annual tournament «Volvo Open Cup», could not imagine what the consequences will turn its participation in the Olympic tournament champion in Turin.
Kovalkova pestering calls from a variety of, sometimes quite exotic locations across the globe. And Olga herself so insistently calls ... in ISU (International Skating Union.. - Ed.), It is elementary to advise that she do now.
In the ISU Council with a loss. Such a number of journalists (and not only, but more on that below) does not storm, perhaps, and the world championships.
The modest palace in Riga unable to accommodate all who want to see and describe the first official show program of Olympic medalist of the last three Olympics.
- What is accreditation? You would not happen to be kidding me? - With apparent calm that probably cost her dearly, answers the telephone Olga. - On Plushenko torn hundreds of media representatives.
Photographers, reporters, TV crews. From the U.S., Germany, Switzerland and Japan. Well, of Russia, of course. And I have only 20 seats behind the glass, no mixed-zone, the rink is narrow corridor to the locker room.
I can not imagine how you are going to communicate with him. And imagine with horror how the several hundred journalists pounce on the poor Plushenko in our narrow hallway, where two or disperse it hard!
And all these people who call me in the morning until the evening, go to Riga for one purpose only: to pounce on Evgeni Plushenko ... And believe it is something that I have to. One woman is calling from Switzerland: I'm going to sell you souvenirs. Thank you very much! I asked: "Why is it so categorically? I am doing this tournament for my money, I'm on it no one gave a penny ... Maybe you first need to ask my permission? "It is, in my opinion, and did not understand what I mean. I said, already took the ticket and hotel booked ...
- Olga, and you do not get lost. Advertisers, given all this boom ...
- What are the advertisers? We are not Russia. We sponsor can be found except for a bottle of water!
- So what do you do?
- I do not know. While I was just in a quiet panic. But to Eugene I did not podpuschu. Otherwise crush will start, as once you have in Moscow, "Luzhniki". I do not need such nightmares."
And for those who wondered if Plushy was really going to show - pictures from his training in Riga:
Note: Plushyfan posted this link in the Fan Fest thread, but I thought it might be of interest here as well.
Thanks Team Abbott
Thursday 7 Nov
20.10 - 21.21 Senior men SP groups 1-2
21.35 - 23.00 groups 3-4 (Plushenko second in 3rd group)
Friday 8 Nov
19.30-21.05 Senior men LP groups 1-2
21.25-23.00 groups 3-4
Suppose it's Riga time which means
Central European +1
Greenwich time +2
Thanks LRK, I really hope everything works out fine for Olga K., that Plushenko and all skaters have a big time AND that the local skating clubs benefit from having the star competing there.
Also crossing fingers for this or this live stream not crashing.
Ladies senior competitions Saturday and Sunday.
More or less: more is more
I can't get the links to show any live streaming (I've checked a couple of times during this day). Are you sure they will stream the competition?
